Last year, we released a quintuplet of remixes of Tick Tock & Milkoeh’s reverent dance psalm with B’utiza, Kakaramba and we are excited to host another one of the dynamic tandem’s originals yet again. Lending our favorite track from their Apocalypse EP on Dance Nation Sounds, Tick Tock, Milkoeh and Mahery on vocals, fuse tribal essence and avant garde Afro-tech with a deep-rooted African mystique to fuel unique interpretations by some of the most promising up and coming producers in the field. Amanz'amnyama, literally ‘Dark Waters,’ an old Zulu adage of an ancestral curse, is as enigmatic and versatile as the subject and reincarnated into three distinctive and equally innovative forms, proved to be an ideal baseboard for creative reimagining.

Up first, Mozaik seasons their remix with synth-laced cosmic groove and retro wanderlust, casting sonic alchemy and a touch of 16 bit playfulness. The french brothers yield a racy excursion that ebbs between sibylline trajectories and driving locomotion. Projecting Mahery’s plaintive vocals with transcendental strings and upbeat drumming, these 7:04 minutes reach the threshold for pure dancefloor euphoria. ​South Africa’s Oxygenbuntu hands out an esoteric twist to ​wistful Mahery. Delicately wafting the vocals in balmy resonance that sticks, and airy pads that subtly more soft-spoken and seep the bones, Oxygenbuntu just made it a little chilly in here and we don’t mind basking in its sedation. Another South African talent wraps up the EP. ladling a fresh, patently vibrant flavor to Amanz'amnyama. Weaving lush percussion, vivacious eurythmics and tender notes, Jackson Brainwave tirelessly procreates budding energy in ethic sonority. Winding down with the mesmeric iteration of Mahery’s rhapsodic lyrics, this remix deep Ohms into its lasting, tantric finish.
